3.93/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz skinny-keg poured into a stemmed tulip. Best before July 30, 2012.

A: Off-white two finger head. Body is a coppery ruby red with only a slight haze. Lacing is plentiful throughout.

S: Sweet candy hops! Pineapple, mango, and a smidgen of banana. Probably even more fruits that I can’t identify. I also smell the house Sixpoint yeast, which I’m mildly disappointed about. As the head fades the caramel malt notes and house yeast aroma become more noticeable.

T: Whoa! Not what I expected. This is loaded with brown sugar and light molasses flavors but without a ton of sweetness...thankfully. It totally reminds me of graham cracker crust. I sense that there is a good amount of bitterness (103 IBUs), but it’s completely held up by all the rich malt.

M: Body is medium, carb is medium-high. The richness of the flavor gives the perception that this has a more luxurious mouthfeel than other beers with similar viscosity and carbonation.

O: I like this, but not for any of the reasons that I thought I was going to coming into the review. I was not expecting such malt forwardness from a green can labeled “Resin”. My mouth was ready for Avery Maharaja but got ...well I don't even know. Somehow there were plenty of bittering hops and plenty of aromatic hops, but very little of the fruit from the nose carried through to the tongue. I wonder what this graham cracker would taste like blended with some Pumking...hmmm.

PS - Ok, I mixed them. A 1:1.5 ratio of Pumking to Resin is pretty good, but not mind blowing. Enjoy.

3.91/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

pours cloudy, dark orange, little to no head.

Smell is fruity as in apricot and peach. Some of the alcohol is picked up. Bubble gum. Light vanilla scent as well.

The name of the beer tells the tale of the first taste. Resinous, bitter bite along with caramel and slight toffee and a little alcohol burn. A bit of peppery spice. Heavy hop bitterness dominates this one. maybe some of the floral variety.

Thick and heavy mouthfeel. very long finish. Medium carbonation.

Im not sure how I feel about this one. Its heavy and bitter for sure but tough to pick up on much more. It does have the malt balance. I prefer some more citrus in my DIPAs but this is ok for a change up. tough to have more than one in a sitting. Would have again but not going to go looking for this one.

4.11/5  rDev +1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4.5

On tap at the Local Taphouse during Sixpoint AleStars session.

Pours a pale golden colour. White webbed bubbly head. Lace is nice and clingy. Looks OK.

Smells lovely. Sherbet with rosewater, lychee and lime. Musky, chalky, vanilla. Sweet, tangy, resiny, good.

Taste is resinous, pretty much from the start. Touch of caramel malt, with some vanilla notes. Resins come on midway, big and developing more bitterness on the back, big and resinous but never quite reaches that horrible ashiness, just huge resin flavour without the ashy bitterness. Quite amazing.

Body decently full. Bit of pull from the hops and quite a big booze note. OK.

Very impressive IPA character, enormous without the palate crushing edge. Beautiful.

Serving type: on-tap
